The best Frank Ocean bootleg remix of the day

Flying Lotus and Frank Ocean
  • Flying Lotus and Frank Ocean
A couple weeks ago I was walking around with Frank Ocean's Channel Orange on my headphones (as per usual) when I was suddenly struck by the idea of Sade covering its lead single, the gorgeously sad and tender "Thinkin Bout You," which in my imagination was so perfect that it nearly made me pass out with joy. Another dreamy matchup would be to have Flying Lotus remix the track, but that didn't even occur to me before FlyLo tweeted yesterday: "i knew id never finish it so might as well let u hear it . . . @frank_ocean bootleg." And he included a link to, yes, an unfinished remix of "Thinkin Bout You."

So far it seems that all he's done to the track is pitch it up, add some twinkles, and run the whole thing through what sound like his usual distortion effects to dirty it all up. It's quite obviously a work in progress, so if someone with a few minutes of free time can get it together to start a Change.org petition, we could maybe convince him to finish what would almost definitely be the best thing in the world for R&B-loving stoners.

Stream it after the jump.
